This 166 acre property is located in Craven County, near the community of Wilmar. Situated just North of Vanceboro, it conveniently sets between Highway 43 and Highway 17 with easy access to both. It's less than 25 miles from Greenville, Washington and New Bern and less than 60 miles from Goldsboro, Morehead City and Jacksonville, with nearby regional airports in Greenville and New Bern. The gated entry to the property is on Wilmar Road less than 2 miles off Highway 17. There are no structures on the property. A nice area on the main path has been mulched out and could be used for a camper or travel trailer site, a tractor shelter or storage shed site or simply just a parking area to unload your UTVs or ATVs for trail riding or hunting. No site work has been performed by the current owner to determine if a perk site would be available for a house or camp. The timber was cut a few years ago and there's a strong showing of planted and regenerative pines. The main road is over 1.2 miles long, and the current landowner has recently added over 2 miles of additional property line paths and trails through the interior of the property to provide excellent access on this tract for any of your recreational desires. It would make an excellent long-range shooting site. From a hunting aspect, it is a clean slate. There is ample room for multiple food plots and stand locations to hunt any wind direction. It is prime bedding habitat currently and with the numerous agricultural fields located around it, it is sure to be home to a number of deer and black bears. Craven County has plenty of animals, and as the saying goes, "if you feed them, they will come." Here's a fun fact for you...  "If you know bears, then you know North Carolina is home to the largest black bears in America. The state's record-holding bear was so enormous, in fact, that he's likely one of the largest to ever live. “The state black bear record, and perhaps the world record, was broken in November, 1998, when Coy Parton killed an 880-pound bear near Vanceboro in Craven County. The bear exceeded the old state record by 160 pounds,” cites Wildlife in North Carolina, Vol. 63 Issue 2, Feb 1999, p34. To this day, this remains one of the largest black bears ever harvested, and one of the largest – if not the largest – in North Carolina history. And although no measurements outside weight exist for this bear, examining other record-breakers gives us a solid idea of the sheer height of this animal."

The property is currently leased for hunting. The lease will terminate at closing. Shown by appointment only to qualified buyers.
